After my last post for pleasant stripermike commented that he didn't think you were allowed to use the striper meat as bait and he is right Franklin did post something about it before. I called the G&FD to see what the rules and regulations were on the matter. One of the representatives said that on page 54 of the handbook you may not use any other fish besides bluegill as bait. So besides your normal bait fish and bluegill you can'not use them as bait. The fine begins at $75 and can get higher from there depending on the cercumstances.
